Lawn Core Aeration Services

Green Bee Lawn Care provides lawn aeration services to make it easier for nutrients and oxygen to access grass roots. Yard aeration strengthens roots and stimulates new growth.

In Houston, we have gumbo soil that has a lot of clay in it. This clay creates conditions that allow for compaction to develop over the year.

This compaction inhibits growing conditions for lawns and deteriorates the health of lawns over time.

Consequently, we recommend aerating your lawn once a year to combat the compaction that develops. This service is available in the spring or fall.

Our Process

Our lawn aeration process aims to create small holes in the soil, so oxygen, fertilizers, and water penetrate deeper into the root system. This process makes grass stronger and more resistant to weeds and diseases.

We aerate lawns in the following six steps: 

  • Our team marks off the heads of sprinkler systems to avoid accidental damage.
  • We use a commercial-grade, gas-powered aerator to quickly and gently create pockets in the lawn to allow for better airflow.
  • Our technicians make overlapping passes to maximize the effectiveness of the lawn aerator’s performance.
  • The aerator pulls out grass plugs to expose the soil to the sun and air, loosen compaction, and clear thatch.
  • We leave the grass plugs, as they have beneficial nutrients and are healthy for the lawn. They will break down and return to the soil within a few weeks.
  • Once the service is complete, we will leave paperwork at your door detailing the work we’ve done.

Benefits of Aeration

Aerating your lawn provides many benefits that will leave your grass healthy and strong.

First and foremost, aerating your lawn helps grass breathe, as it exposes it to more oxygen and sunlight. Aeration allows grass roots to grow longer and stronger by making it easier for nutrients to access the soil.

Due to external factors like foot traffic, lawn soil becomes compacted over time, making the roots difficult for fertilizer to access. With aeration, this compaction loosens, allowing for better nutrient absorption.

Apart from promoting healthy growth, aeration can also prevent thatch. Thatch, made up of lawn debris such as dead roots and lawn clippings, gets trapped between the soil’s surface and the grass.

If this build-up becomes too thick, it soaks up moisture and does not allow the roots to thrive. Aeration breaks up thatch and lets the roots grow properly.

Finally, aeration can help prevent bugs and disease from killing grass. When roots cannot get necessary nutrients, they cannot withstand temperature changes and maintain long-term good health. This weakness can create a breeding ground for pests and leave the lawn susceptible to disease.

Don’t leave your lawn vulnerable to disease, thatch, and bugs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need to aerate my lawn?

When your lawn is packed too tightly, roots may not sprout properly, and moisture cannot reach them. Airflow and sunlight are vital to grass growth, and without them, growing is difficult.

Aeration breathes new life into compacted soil, allowing it to receive the nutrients it needs. It also clears thatch, which is a harmful buildup that can ruin lawns and invite pests.

When to aerate your lawn in Houston?

Late spring is the growing season for grass and the best time to aerate your lawn in Houston. Aeration will ensure a healthy root system for your grass.

How long after aeration can I seed?

The holes from aeration services provide a proper environment for seeds to germinate. You want all your grass seeds to germinate, and seeding right after aeration can greatly improve your chances.
